May 22-26 – Nome, Part 3: More Birds

In my first two Parts in this series of blog posts, I covered scenes from my recent trip to Nome and large birds. This post will cover more birds that I saw and photographed, mostly smaller ones.  The birds are more or less in taxonomic order with related birds grouped together.
